realtor: 9-11:Years later... - 09/14/08 11:29 AM
 
9-11
You can't really put a period after it.
Who would?
I spent 9-11 this year at a charity golf event, (that blog is coming):
Some good people in hard times trying to help others.  
My head and my heart stumble over the memories of that day trying to write about it.
All those people.
All those families.
All those tears.
Now, years later,
let's share our hope with each other.
For peace.

realtor: SUMMER SHORT COURSE: Real Estate Web Marketing 101 - 08/05/08 07:48 AM
Think of this as a very, very short version of summer school:
Check you ROI on your current marketing plan.
80% of home buyers are on line-, so make sure all your listings are on line.
Then, re-align your marketing budget now for fall and winter to reflect reaching that 80%.
Read blogs-start your blog. Tour some on line communities-join one.
Don't forget that more pictures on line means fewer days on market.
To complete the course, watch this video as a little refresher
from the gang at realestatewebmarketing101. Thanks, guys!
Then, maybe make a few phone calls, too! I know … (3 comments)
